POOL PROBLEMS 

Water level is a priority and must be kept at a level to allow water to flow through the skimmer boxes at all times. Failure to do this could result in enormous expenditure to you. 
No metal objects are to be allowed in the pool as it could cause corrosion marks. No anumals in the pool, as it creates a huge chemical imbalance. Enure regular testing of water to keep correct PH level, this helps prevent mould/fungus forming in the pool. Vacuum at least once a week to keep pool clear of dbris. Regular checks of pump to ensure motor working correctly and efficiently (making funny noises could be a forerunner to a problem). Leaking or pooling water at the pump could mean a cracked casing and will need attention. Even if the pool is maintained by you, it is still part of your responsibility to keen an eye/ear out for any problems.
